Longtime assistant coach David Hunt has been promoted to head coach of the Pepperdine men’s volleyball program, making him the eighth head coach in the program’s history.

Since December 2007, Hunt has assisted the program in many capacities, including as video coordinator and volunteer assistant. He was elevated to the role of assistant coach in 2010 and promoted to associate head coach in 2014. In his first season with the squad, the team ranked number two nationally after an appearance in the NCAA Championship match against Penn State. Throughout Hunt’s decade of service as a Waves coach, Pepperdine has finished in the American Volleyball Coaches Association final rankings top 10 on nine occasions and in the top five six times.

“I want to thank everyone in the Pepperdine community for their support through this transition,” said Hunt. “I am excited to continue the tradition and live up to the standard Marv [Dunphy] has set as the men’s volleyball coach at Pepperdine. I look forward to sustaining the culture of excellence that has been set by those who have come before me.”
